Selections + Best Shot + Mood Board

Here are my favorite images from my shoot. Originally I wanted to focus primarily on hip hop music. My subject, Bryan, is both a hip hop artist and tattoo artist so we made it work. On short notice, he granted me permission to invade his space for a quick shoot. I enjoyed this so much, that I plan to further the series of urban artistry in my hometown. Your feedback is encouraged and appreciated.

Best Shot

ORIGINAL MOODBOARD: I want to showcase the hip hop talent in my hometown, Youngstown, Ohio.

I want to take portraits of artists in urban settings doing every day things while showcasing their impact on our local music scene and hip hop culture. I'd rather take the shots outside, in a barber shop or record store, etc. versus white backdrops and such. The images will be black and white and hopefully tell a story about their personal style and the impact they have in their hood.
